Step 1 Prepare the skewers
Prior to grilling, soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
Step 2 Glaze the prawns
In small bowl, mix together the ginger, teriyaki sauce and vegetable oil. Skewer Alaska prawns, piercing through both the head and tail sections of each shrimp. Brush prawns with the glaze and place each skewer on a tray to rest for 30 minutes.

Fun fact: The word “teriyaki” is a combination of the Japanese words “teri” meaning “luster” and “yaki” meaning “grill” or “broil.” In a teriyaki dish, ingredients are cooked over high heat after being marinated in or basted by teriyaki sauce, which gives luster or shine to the food.
